Category Overview

Aerosol primers and undercoats to provide the perfect start to any project. Adhesion primers to help topcoats stick to any surface, rust preventing primers to stop or convert rusty metal, and stain block primers to hold back stubborn stains. Primers and undercoats should not be overlooked on maintenance, refurbishment or repair projects, and especially not with aerosols, where overall film builds are much lower than with a normal brush or roller applied primer for metal. Using the correct primer or undercoat can mean improved performance of the whole coating system, where its full potential can be achieved.

Typically, primers and undercoats are best suited for mid coats and finishing coats by the same manufacturer – although there are instances where an aerosol stain-blocker from one manufacturer would be suitable for use under a finishing coat by another.
